So I don’t know if you guys remember this, but we got a kitten last winter. He is now becoming more cat and less kitten and although we love him dearly, he is a bit of a menace. Seventy five percent of the time (or thereabouts) he is sweet and adorable, cuddling on the edge of the sofa while we are watching Psych. But anytime there is anything edible in the vicinity, he becomes a merciless thug – stealing and constantly attacking our food. He has taken to breaking into the pantry, eating bags of hamburger buns and knocking down any candy in his path. He’s quite lucky that he’s so cute. To protect our pantry, we have had to start wedging one of the chairs up against the folding doors which has resulted in lots of chipped paint and somehow he has still managed to break through the defenses. So I have to decided to improve our strategy by attaching a latch to the doors so the little jerk can’t get in. And also paint the doors to fix all the chips and messed up paint. Instead of trying to match the existing white paint, I’m thinking of going with an accent color. The options are super dramatic black or simple gray. Right now the kitchen is white and kind of blah (I need to add some personality in a big way), so the black might provide a nice punch. But then the gray would keep things lighter and a little more consistent with the rest of the room where the black might feel a little bit like it was coming out of nowhere. I keep going back and forth. Thoughts?
